in chicago, defense attorneys call the city "the false confession capital of the united states." chicago has twice as many documented false confession cases as any city in the country. one reason may be the way police go about questioning suspects, and "60 minutes" has learned the chicago police department is now the subject of a justice department investigation into its interrogation practices. two cases we examined involve several teenage boys who were arrested and, they say, forced or tricked into confessing to violent crimes they never committed. each spent nearly half their lives in prison. they are free now, and told us their story together for the first time. >> terrill swift: we all of us got one thing in common-- we did an extensive amount of time in jail for something we didn't do. and that's the bottom line. >> pitts: they each were sentenced to terms that ranged from 15 years to life. terrill swift, michael saunders, vincent thames, and harold richardson were convicted in one rape and murder; james harden, robert taylor and jonathan barr, in a different one. all were found guilty
will. so does washington, d.c. the court also agreed to hear a challenge to the federal defense of marriage act. it defines marriage as "only a legal union between one man and one woman." the law had a big effect on edie windsor of new york who married tea spire in 2007. when spire died the irs sent a tax bill for $300,000 because it did not consider them to be married. >> the injustice. i couldn't believe they were making a stranger of this person i lived with and loveded for 43 something years. >> under that law, same sex couples who are legally married are denied about 1,000 federal benefits that other married couples get. after first supporting the defense of marriage act, the obama administration concluded last year that it violates the constitution. >> we cannot defend the federal government poking its nose into what states are doing and putting the thumb on the scale against same sex companies. >> reporter: house republicans are now taking up the law's legal defense. supporters say it helps preserve traditional marriage. >> unions of two men and two women are not the same
the gays. >> no. >> this whole concept of using a weapon for self-defense is rooted in the teaching of christ. >> what? >> so we have a legal principal that is rooted in the teaching of christ. it's hard to get much more legitimate than that. >> how many people did jesus kill. >> stephanie: i don't remember jesus talking about the guns so much karl. >> i do. remember when he said father forgive them for they know not what they do but they will have to pry this weapon out of my cold dead hands. >> stephanie: right. >> why else would you wear a robe if you weren't concealing. >> stephanie: all right then. now [ inaudible ]. >> we have a huge problem in america that sharia is now being brought into our legal system. the muslim brotherhood is absolutely incredible. we're becoming a marxist nation. and everything we're doing is right out of the marxist play book. go back and read the communist manifesto if you don't believe me. and then look at what we have done in america. >> stephanie: i need some light reading on the plane on the way to washington so i think i'll
, military response? "outfront" tonight, peter brooks, former deputy assistant secretary of defense under the bush administration, and colonel cedrick layton, former member of the joint staff. good to see both of you. colonel layton, let me start with you. if the united states were to get involved at this point, what would a serious u.s. military intervention in syria look like? >> it would probably, erin, start out with a no fly zone type operation, similar to what we had during operation southern watch, which -- and northern watch, which basically governed the skies over those parts of iraq after the first gulf war. that would be the first step. however, in order to secure things like chemical weapons, you would definitely have to look at using ground troops. it may not be u.s. ground troops, but the possibilities certainly exist that they might be used. >> of ground troops which i think is the key words for all viewers out there. ground troops is a very different sort of concept than what many people thought about what would happen in syria. and peter, i guess it comes down to this, ab

district i have a major base and defense contractors are there. they are already telling me they are laying off. >> how many cuts are you expecting? >> we don't know in total but we know there will be because they are telling us. >> i think you have to be willing to commit political harry kerry because you have to say no. >> our day in washington isn't done, just beginning. top of the next hour maria and i will be joined by senator johnny isakson. back to you guys. >> maria, brian, thank you very much. will a fiscal cliff deal be done in time? why don't you register your opinion. finance.cnbc. cast your vote. results will come up later on "power lunch." sue. >> we have a triple digit rally on the floor of the new york stock exchange with the dow jones industrial just off the highs of the trading session. we're up 109 points on the dow despite the gridlock in washington. nasdaq is up 41 points and s&p 500 is up 13 points. all three of those averages moving back above their 50-day moving average. first time we've seen that since october. trader from cnbc, and ceo of destination wealth managem

to the defense of marriage act passed under president clinton that defined marriage between a man and woman for the purposes of federal law. the question is why now. why did the supreme court choose this moment? nine states and washington, d.c. all recognize same-sex marriage now. that doesn't seem like many, but it's happening quickly. three of those states people voted to legal marriage in november. first time ever done so. there's a big public opinion trend here. since '04, polls have been asking people should it be legal or illegal for gay couples to get married. 59% of people said they thought it should be against the law. in 2012 it was almost the opposite. 53% favor making it legal. pew has been asking the question since 1996. when 65% of people were against same-sex marriage. by october of this year, 49% were for marriage equality while 40% opposed it. one more set of numbers. gallop released their polling this week. 53% of people polled support legalizing same-sex marriage. but look inside the poll. among young people 18 to 29-year-olds, 73% say they think same-sex marriage should

. >> and he's defensive about it. and he's stubborn about it. there's something much deeper going on. he understands football, rex ryan, so he knows objectively that mark sanchez is not getting the job done and hasn't for the last couple of years. so it defies credibility that you wouldn't at least give another guy a shot. or when you did give another guy a shot in greg mcelroy, he won the game for you, so maybe give him a shot this week. >> i can understand saying tim tebow's not the quarterback that i want to go with, but you had mcelroy who played on a national championship team, he grew up with his father being a coach for the dallas cowboys. he gets it. he came in off the bench last week, won the game, and you're not dressing him the next week? it's like rex ryan wants to be fired. >> it's selfish also because you have to say as a coach, i want to give these other guys a chance to win. and we'll start mark, but we're going to go with the guy that can help win this game because everybody's practicing hard and we want to win which makes it even more curious because rex is a good coach
in mali. what i heard from our experts, from the department of defense, from the state department, from usaid as well as a range of outside experts and one witness who testified from bamaco, the capital of mali, is was of concern to me. this is the largest controlled area in the world. in the north, extremists have imposed a harsh and strict version of sharia, or islamic law, and gross human rights violations. many people have heard of timbuktu but don't know it's a city in northern mali. in a site where extremists have behaved much like the taliban did in afghanistan before 9/11, destroying sacred and religious historic artifacts, imposing a harsh version of sharia that has meant amputations, stoning, violation of women's rights and free speech and religious free exercise rights, fundamentalling changing the tolerance and inclusive history of mali and creating with it a humanitarian crisis as more than 400,000 malians have fled, either internally displaced within mali or going to neighboring countries with refugees. with growing ties between these terrorists and nigeria, libya and thro
